Bio

My research focus is using external events in business processes. I am investigating on the challenges to be considered for the integration. Especially, I am concerned with the requirements and possibilities of flexible event subscription from a business process perspective.

I joined the Business Process Technology research group of Hasso Plattner Institute as a PhD student in March 2015. I am also a part of HPI Research School since April 2015.

Before starting with my PhD, I completed M.Sc. in Computer Science from TU Kaiserslautern. My major was Software Engineering. I came to Germany in 2011 after completing my Bachelor studies in Computer Science from West Bengal University of Technology. I am originally from Kolkata, India.
